Red Hat, Inc., the provider of open source solutions, announces the availability of Red Hat OpenStack Platform 16, the latest version of its Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solution.
More than 1,000 enhancements and new features will lay the foundation for enterprise and telco workloads from programmable IaaS for hybrid clouds, developer clouds and production clouds and cloud-native applications like network functions virtualization (NFV), edge computing, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML).
The latest version of the platform adds a refined long-life support lifecycle, feature consolidation and a new commitment to delivering continuous community innovation as enterprise-ready features via stream releases, the company says.
The platform combines the OpenStack community releases of “Rocky,” “Stein,” and “Train,” along with Red Hat OpenStack Platform versions 14 and 15.
Red Hat OpenStack Platform 16 is designed to help organizations standardize and remain on a single version of the platform for up to five years.
“This enables IT teams to more confidently deploy traditional and cloud-native workloads on Red Hat OpenStack Platform, gaining the flexibility, scalability and innovation of the hybrid cloud with the assurances of long-term enterprise-class support from Red Hat,” according to a company release.

In Red Hat OpenStack Platform 16, the platform’s life-cycle has been aligned with that of the underlying Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system.
